Project Officer to the International Harbour Masters’ Association, Captain Ben van Scherpenzeel, will represent the Association at the Port Symposium “A holistic approach to standards for port operational data in maritime supply chains”, to be held 30 April 2020 at IMO headquarters in London.
The symposium will address the priorities and challenges in the development of international standards for operational data in ports, including for berth to berth navigation, the ship-port interface and the end-to-end supply chain. The programme is in line with the findings of the IMO Global Industry Alliance (GIA) for Low Carbon Shipping, to realize e.g. Just In Time Arrivals.
Remote participation in the event is open to IMO’s Member Governments, IGOs, NGOs and the general public and information regarding livestreaming the event can be found at http://www.imo.org/en/About/Events/Pages/Port-symposium-30-April-2020.aspx
